Record Store Day is back at full throttle, while several key artists also return with new music.

Edgar Winter invited an all-star cast over to pay tribute to his brother, the late Johnny Winter. Featured performers include Joe Bonamassa, Billy Gibbons, Warren Haynes, Steve Lukather, Michael McDonald and Ringo Starr, among others. New music is also on the way from Joe Satriani, Ted Nugent and Kirk Hammett.

Just Like That ...  is Bonnie Raitt's first album in six years. We're also getting the first taste of Envy of None, ex-Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson's new collaboration with founding Coney Hatch bassist Andy Curran.

Ann Wilson's latest solo LP features cover art by Roger Dean, best known for his collaborations with Yes. Red Hot Chili Peppers' 12th studio album was produced by Rick Rubin, who previously helmed favorites like 1991's Blood Sugar Sex Magik and 1999's Californication.

Reissues include an expanded edition of Rush's landmark 1981 album Moving Pictures. Daryl Hall's new two-disc solo retrospective spans all five of his solo albums and includes previously unreleased recordings from Live From Daryl’s House.
